During the In Their Own Voices seminar, educators Dr. Ruth Green and Martha Toulouse will give us insight into their heritage, rich history and start the conversation on looking deeper at the concept and construct of ‘settler’. In addition, it will focus on the significance of land acknowledgments—because ETT is a Toronto-based organization, and Dr. Green will speak to the Dish with One Spoon as a means of unpacking Land Acknowledgements.

How do we use the proper names when addressing our hosts?
As Dr. Green is considered the scholar who first published on the use of Guest/Host responsibilities, we will be learning and having conversations for us to grow and be a part of the work, not the problem. In addition, Dr. Green will speak to demystifying the idea of “truth and reconciliation.”
